lifewithdogs.tv On August 18, 2014, Tim Clifton, director of Animal Control in Clarksville, Tenn., rescued a tiny dog dumped in a garbage container. At first Clifton couldn’t identify the dog’s breed because the Yorkshire terrier was covered in blood, grease and trash. Nevertheless, the small pet was rushed to a vet clinic where his life was saved. According to The Lead Chronicle, the dog now named Oscar, was left for dead in a dumpster in Lincoln Homes. It is believed the small pet was thrown in the garbage after another animal mauled him. “He was so weak, he couldn’t stand up,” Clifton said. “You know how trash smells after several days in the sun? That’s how I found him.” Oscar was rushed to the Animal Hospital in Clarksville, Tenn. and Dr. Andrew Fancher performed emergency surgery to fix the dog’s broken jaw and stitch the many wounds the pup had throughout his body. Oscar’s jaw was wire shut and he is currently fed with a syringe. After hospital staff cleaned the pet they discovered he was a young Yorkshire terrier, between one- and two-years-old. to read more: lifewithdogs.tv
